Default NOT leaving Texas

Called my boss today and said I won’t relocate to the east coast.

When my wife was sick with her brain cancer battle I was asked to relocate to the east coast which is my territory. I said I would when the battle was over. It’s been 10 months now and I decided this weekend it’s not going to happen.

My boss was cool about it and supported me. They plan on restructuring the territories to accommodate me.

Yeah baby!!!

I am glad if you are glad! Not much a fan of the east coast myself (past South Carolina anyway), though I have always been fond of the midwest (fell in love with it after living in Cinti Ohio in my 20's). Not enough to relocate, but fun to visit.

Congrats. I was giving the “opportunity” to relocate to Tennessee several years ago. When he showed me the salary, I told him he needed to add a zero.

^this. When managers recognize the importance of in-house talent and value your happiness and commitment to them each party wins.

Edit - to CToms response.

Fire protection for commercial construction.

Kristin passed away on November 1 last year. I had a suspicion that my wording would be misinterpreted. I’ll wordsmith later this morning.

I am sorry to hear about your wife. I grew up in Western Pa and love it. The east coast not so much.

Glad it worked out for you. My daughter lived in North Carolina for a while and I'm personally not a fan of the East Coast.
